Here's a better video with testing of Polymaker's Polymide CoPA filament. I get the feeling that Stefan and Justin would get along with each other famously.

"Commuter - DC Booster"
Iron Horse 3.0 hardtail - 48V / 1000W / 470rpm generic Chinese DD Hub motor (ebay)
8 x 36v 4.3ah 10s 2P battery packs - 1500W 30A DC Boost Converter delivers 54v and about 1000 watts peak
53T/42T Sakae Road cranks - 30mph+ on flats

Impressive filament for a hobbiest looking for strength. Pretty darn pricey though.
Ask for it by name.

"averaging 700-900 watts"
That is alot of power for a set of solar panels, right? 5+kWh in the day? Seems like alot ( of power).

God Damn. Look at those ball screws. Them are some ballscrews. I have a teacher inthe family who does nothing but CAD and 3d printing destign and schooling. I have learned alot from him, ad he always says ( has said)rigidity is key.

I just spent on Hiwins.

(7) (1060mm) linear rails and 14 angular contact bearing blocks. Spent5 more than I feed myself in a year. Now time to empty that bank again for the ballscrews.

I love boats. We did do our Electric - powered steamer. It went... fast. Wake for days. Javelin's bow was six feet out the water.
3000 psi design boiler, 300psi working load. Then the Feedwater pump failed and burnt all the gaskets in the entire superheater stack. Lol Every one.. Dust. Cut new carbon fiber/ graphite gasketry and away we went.

Keep up the cool stuff, you make it easy for us, Justin. You do make it look easy. I spent two days wiring that boat and thought I did a good job... 5 relays, and standard circuitry. Watertite conduit and gland nuts, Properly sized, code meeting boxes in plastic. Gaskets on the entire electrical system. everywhere. Its so deep in there.

I would like to see more pictures of your wiring scheme: How you handle power, sensor circuitry, if you separate them, or what you do,: with redundancy and reliability in mind: for my educations.

.. Or some reference to the standards you follow.
84v of Ironhorse XC.. :) :bolt: by Chevy :bolt: :D Ok So that was what you call a "glitch:" :twisted: (...No Mom. The formula is Kaw > 1(Hr) = Impounded. The math checks out. I'll be fine. ).. :? Broke20Horsies! 17,830w !! :x 1 (pound / second) Horse Power = 338.24 M^2 Kg^2 / Sec^4 ( :twisted: prove me wrong :twisted: ) :| (Taramps?Yall?) :confused: Fabricator @ BSECo. Inc.

Sure. But at 2-3 times the price of ordinary PLA, it isn't exactly exotic. And it is only about 50% more expensive than the Carbon Fiber PETG that was initially used. The problem with these things is the cost of experimenting. But if Grin is going to be using 3D printing more and is willing to spend thousands on a high quality industrial printer, then having $67 a kg for a filament that can make many parts shouldn't be a deal breaker. It isn't even outrageous for a hobbyist if there's really a need.

Well, that's true.
